A log cabin is a great way to transform your outdoor space. Forest Garden log cabins have roofs and floors made from kiln-dried Tongue & Groove boards and are available with a choice of different roof felt options (we recommend the roof options that include underlay).
The timber used for these log cabins is slow grown, clear, Nordic Spruce. This timber is FSC? certified to ensure the stainability of the wood. The timber is kiln dried and we strongly advise that you apply and appropriate solvent-based preservative treatment inside and outside soon after assembly to extend the life of the cabin and whilst the timber used will change colour over time, simply re-apply a colour-based timber treatment regularly to maintain your preferred look.
Our precision-engineered logs are constructed with a 6-sided joint and chalet-cut corners to strengthen against the UK?s weather.
This log cabin must be built on a flat, level surface that is solid.
The Arley cabin from Forest garden is a 6-metre wide log cabin that is 3-metres deep. The 6-metre width provides room for two glazed doors and 2 windows so the cabin will naturally get plenty of light.
The walls are 45mm thick interlocking logs and the windows are double glazed with toughened glass. The floor and roof are constructed from 19mm tongue and groove boards. All four front windows have tilt and turn mechanisms that permit side or top opening.
The overall dimensions of this stunning cabin are 6.24 metres x 3.37 metres (17 x 11 feet). The front of the roof has a 30cm overhang for extra protection from the weather. The internal floor dimensions of the Arley are 5.7m x 2.7m (a total floor area of 15.5 m2 (166 square feet)) which means this cabin can easily be used for many different purposes, including a hobby room or workshop, office or business space, or general extra living space.
Different roof felt options are available for our log cabins. This option includes a 34kg weight Polyester felt and black sand felt underlay. The felt has a polyester fibre base layer, making it much tougher and more resistant to tearing than non-polyester grades. As this felt has more than three times the tear resistance of conventional mineral felt it has a life expectancy of up to 20-30 years when installed properly.
